PITTSBURGH (AP) - Suburban Pittsburgh high school students will not be getting extra sleep, for now.

The North Allegheny School Board on Wednesday tabled a proposal on whether to change the start of the high school from 7:25 a.m. to 8 a.m. The board says it needs to study the costs associated with bus routes that would be affected by the change.

Parents told the board research has shown the start time is important and an extra 35 minutes of sleep would make a difference in how students perform.
